-Food shortages

-Property shortages

-Less room

-Greater strain on resources

8) I can explain urbanization completely. (Be sure to touch on the decreasing ruralization; even though we need food and crops like never before. Why is farming growing when people are selling their farms and moving into cities.) (3)

Urbanization is the physical growth of urban areas with result in the decrease in rural areas. Urbanization basically means that people are migrating from farms and rural land and living in cities instead. Farming is growing when people are migrating to cities because the farmers that are still owning the land now can gain more land, also they will have to farm more often because there is less farmers.

9) I can explain the term; standard of living. (6)

Standard of living means how available that person is to goods, how wealthy they are. Basically referring to how rich they are. Standard also can be the quality of their life, how good their life is and if they meet the needs that they are supposed to meet.

10) I can explain what it means to be a First World country, Second World country, Third World Country.
(What do each of the terms mean and find a picture/map/graph to explain each.)

First world countries are the countries that were involved with the Cold War and are aligned with the United States. Second world countries refer to the industrial states, influenced by the Soviet Union. Third world countries are the poor and less fortunate countries, countries that need the most resources.

11) I can explain what the natalist paradigm is. (2)
12) What does it mean to be in harmony with the environment? Do you think we are living in harmony with the environment? Explain your response. (3)

To be in harmony with the environment basically means to be agree with everything that the environment upholds. Everything that the environment stands for. I don’t think that we are living in harmony with the environment. If we were living in harmony with the environment then we wouldn’t be changing everything natural about it.


13) How many people live on the planet?

7.046 billion

14) What are the 5 largest cities?

Shanghi, Tokyo, New York City, Beijing, Tokyo.

15) What continent has the worst poverty? Why? Explain in detail.

Africa has the worst poverty. Africa has a lack of basic human needs. If Arica had proper medical attention and resources that they need to live they wouldn’t have problems with their health. Lots of people die in Africa due to illnesses.

16) Should first world countries be force to support third world countries? Explain your response.

I don’t think that first world countries should literally be forced to support third world countries. In my opinion I think that they should just be fair enough to help them out. We aren’t in a fight we are living on the same planet. Everyone should just be that genuine to make sure that they have the resources. First world countries have so many resources that we could equally share them around the world and still have extra for themselves. Shouldn’t be forced its just common sense to share and support the third world countries.
